The Taste of Olean is a festival filled with great food and entertainment. Admission to the event is free. Pay as you eat! New for 2018 - no tickets! Booths will be accepting cash. For more information on the Taste of Olean, call Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce at 716-372-4433 or e-mail [email protected] The restaurants will present "tastes" of foods, not whole meals or sandwiches — smaller portions with affordable costs between 50 cents and $3.50. Since there are sooo many new restaurants in Olean, this is a great way to get a sampling of all of them! Art in the Park, sponsored by the Tri-County Arts Council (CCAC) held in conjunction with the Taste, is a juried fine arts show with a long standing tradition of showcasing the finest art in southwestern New York and northwestern Pennsylvania. Celebrating its 69th historic year, Art in the Park is dedicated to excellence in visual arts and handcrafted goods as well as enhancing and promoting the visual arts and the talented artists and artisans in the area. This outdoor event attracts over 6,000 people with a complementary audience capture of multiple events occurring at the same time. Art in the Park will recognize several of the artists in the following categories: Best of Show; 1st Place; 2nd Place; and 3rd Place. Chalk it up contest for a $5 entrance fee.
